A Common Ground Country Fair Thank You!

A Common Ground Country Fair Thank You!

December 1, 2016

With the cold deepening and the tents packed away, we are warmed by the memories and feelings of gratitude for all the volunteers, fairgoers and exhibitors who made the 40th Common Ground Country Fair amazing.

Over 60,000 attendees came and celebrated community with bountiful farmers' markets, delicious organic food, entertainment with Maine roots, talented artisans and knowledge sharing. This would not have been possible without the help and generosity of over 2,000 volunteers. These volunteers contributed in myriad ways, and their support of the Common Ground Country Fair and of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association cannot be overstated. Thank you!

Interested in getting involved? The Fair is continually evolving and improving. Your input and dedication are needed. Please contact Anna Libby, MOFGA's volunteer coordinator, at [email protected] or 207-568-4142 to discuss possibilities.

I hope the Fair left you with a full heart and an excitement for the upcoming 2017 Fair. Planning is well underway. Thank you for making the 40th Common Ground Country Fair a true milestone filled with peace, hope and community.

– April Boucher
Director, Common Ground Country Fair
